Vehicle Description

1950 Oldsmobile 2 Door Jetback Model 88 Futuramic
for sale in Mahwah, New Jersey.
Great history on this unique original muscle car
from way back when cars like this were the
original muscle cars of the era. I have in my
possession an article from Street Rodder Magazine
featuring this exact car from back in 1975, this
Olds was 25 years old at the time and Al Kvarme
from Belmont California would find specifically
1949 & 1950 Oldsmobile\\\\\\\'s and set them up for drag
racing. Back in 2010 when I was fortunate enough
to find this car from a friend I wrote Old Cars
Weakley about this car and they liked it so much
they made it one of their \\\\\\\"Cars of the Week\\\\\\\",
please Google old weekly car of the week November
2010 and open up the article and read their story
about my car. The great thing about that article
is that Al Kvarme now in his late 80\\\\\\\'s read the
article and gave me a call and shared with me some
great insight about this car. He found this car
back in 1975 in New Mexico in a junk yard, he
could not believe his eyes the condition of this
car, so he saved it and made it just the way he
liked to do these cars. The sheet metal to this
day is all original with no bondo or plastic and
straight as an arrow. Back in 75 he did this car
up with a 454 engine and the only modification was
he had the rear wheel wells radiusesed and the
wells were rolled perfectly, he nosed and decked
the car but kept those great 88 Spears. He won
first place at the Oakland Rod and Custom show
BACK IN THE MID 70\\\\\\\'S. Currently the underside is
solid and the suspension is all cad plated and
looks only a few years old. He had the interior
completed by a Belmont California Leather
craftsman in an orange and black rolled and
pleated leather, you would think it was done
recently, actually a year ago at a local show it
one best interior, that is how nice it really is.
The color is 1975 Porsche Blood Orange, this was
reapplied in 2005 and looks as though it was done
last year. The car currently has a fresh built
Chevy 402 big block pushing over 500HP and only
has a few hundred miles on her, with 9-5
compression and runs fine on pump gas. The
previous owner drove in the Hot Rod power tour and
that is documented in a Hot Rod article (I have a
copy of this also). , This Olds is ready for the
show circuit or take her to the drags. Speaking of
the drags, this exact car was a back up in the
movie Hot Rod in the 70\\\\\\\'s, this car ended up on
the cutting room floor because it looked too fast
and Al brought another without the modified rear
wheel wells that was in the movie that lost to the
willies Coupe (I also have a copy of that iconic
classic movie that goes with this car) Let me tell
you about this fun car, every show I take it to it
is always a big hit. The engine runs beautifully
and smooth the worked 400 Turbo automatic with
shift kit and 2400 RPM stall converter shifts the
car smoothly and crisp. The tach on the dash has a
small crack on the face from vibration, the gauges
on the top of the dash look great and the oil
pressure is just where it should be. The back up
lights are on a separate switch and work fine over
the newly re-chromed spears, all the chrome is
good and I have the front bumper and grille for
the Olds also. A separate switch for the electric
fan works the way it should. No radio and the
wipers are not working, I never drove it in the
rain but I have sealed the windshield with rainx.
All the glass is in beautiful condition, mostly
original and tinted. I have some really nice
nostalgic decals on the windows right now. The
exhaust runs through stock headers into side
pipes, I had the shop install Super Traps to quiet
her down a bit. As mentioned the interior is
almost mint, one small mark on the drivers seat
from wear. She has Line Lock and the brakes were
just inspected and adjusted and the oil & filter
changed and she was all lubed up ready to go on
it\\\\\\\'s next trip. The Engine compartment is
Zolotoned (GREAT LOOK) and new twin hollys on the
original Weiand tunnel ram are dialed in just
right. Give me a call to check out this Beast. For
